Calling ALL girls!! Especially those of you who LOVE shoes! I am most satisfied with a broken-in pair of Rainbows, so shoes are not my forte.
Now, I feel as though this is almost as important as choosing a dress. I’ve been back and forth on what type and color would be best for the venue that Z. and I choose, and if it’s outdoors, I’d hate to be sinking into the grass and hobbling around. In that case, a flat or a wedge sounds like the perfect solution, with a possibility of a cowboy boot (don’t cringe, look at how cute this is).
However, a friend has noted that as I am from a small town and have a more “country” nature, my fiance Z. is not. It may fit the feeling of the venue, but perhaps not His character (Z. did say it was okay, for the record). If boots were to be a realistic option, I would have chosen grey for the sole purpose of carrying on the color palette, but these browns look more the part. I, of course, would be in a nice pair of mustard yellow or cream ones, of which I haven’t found a picture yet. Hehe :]
There is still the chance that a venue will make sense and will be indoors, thus allowing for heels. I’ve been referred to MyGlassSlipper’s gorgeous footwear. Here are a couple that I may be considering:
I like the strap and the buckle around the back of the heel, giving me a stronger sense of security in terms of the heel slipping at all. The small flower on the front is feminine and shouldn’t take any of the focus off of the dress itself.
Because I am not graceful in heels, the back of this one makes me a little nervous, but I do believe that the open side of the shoe is gorgeous. The bow on the end of this heel looks slightly larger, so I’d have to try them on with the gown.
I’ve seen quite a few photos of bride’s that didn’t compromise comfort and sided with the Slipper/Ballet Shoe or a flip-flop — an ideal situation, for I am weary about a heel. I think that this look is perfectly paired with a ball gown, a dress that covers your feet; though, at a whopping 5’2″ I may drown in a huge, poofy ball gown … haha so many things to think about.
Any suggestions? More websites where I could find the perfect shoe??
